I'll give you advice one of my mentors passed on:  This is the hardest working, lowest paid job the first couple of years, but the highest paying - most rewarding career later....  

Hang in there!

I recommend a good SSRI or SNRI to all new news.

And shoes.

And a golf ball.

Some will some won’t do what next.

Gotta run - my PTSD is kicking in from my first years.

Golf ball =. Gay as fuck. Calling bullshit on this. I rang 20,000 fucking doorbells. Queerasses in the EDJ home
Office always talk about the fucking golf ball; almost as gay as the CFP Board. Ring the motherfucking doorbell.
Good luck and good selling.

Yeah, this was so stupid. I got the same line.

How many people have friends come to the door unannounced these days?

It reminds me of this Maniscalco routine. Classic. And so true, for those of you that grew up in the 80's and earlier. LOL

Point of clarification.  I thought Troy Nelson took over most of Rob Boyde's book when he became a GP and moved to the home office.  Am I wrong on this?

I was long gone when this became a thing but I believe I heard his father was a life insurance agent and sent all of the clients to him.

His dad trained advisors, but not sure where. His office became the biggest office in 7 years, so something like above.

That was the point of missions post in case anyone missed the humor

Yeah, it's weird about Jones in this way. Anytime I listen to a podcast or read an article about an advisor at other firms or that's independent, they always explain the "backstory"....."Joined my father's firm, he retired, we wanted to grow the business so we did X, Y, and Z". But Jones stories are all the same. "Worked hard, followed the recipe, knocked on doors, sat at kitchen tables, hugged widows, blah, blah, blah".

Yes, there are plenty of stories of hard working "door-knockers" that are 100% true. But in many/most cases of really big producers (especially more recent ones, versus back in the 80's/90's), there is usually a pretty interesting back story. Inherited business, huge GK plan, office takeover, dad was the estate planning attorney in town that sent me all his clients, maybe you just plain got lucky for whatever reason. And NONE of those reasons are "bad" or should be looked down upon. But when you consistently lie and are disingenuous about how you developed business, it's laughable.

I do believe to an extent this is changing.  Most newbies are getting assets or taking over an office at some level.  You will hear old school region or home office soldiers that will puff out their chest.  In our area we are really trying to recruit successful professionals that actually have a clue.  We are looking to bring those types in with the thought of asset sharing.  Others are literally too dumb to know any better.  honestly the Wolfs of the world are becoming extremely rare.  If someone cant bring something else to the door knocking equation such as professional or social network then I wish them luck.
